  1. Dream Bream.

    For years my PB Bream had been 9Ib. Quite a modest sized specimen for these days of massive double figure slabs. Last summer i decided to make it a target of mine to catch a Bream of 10Ib + i like to increase my PB slowly then you get to experience the buzz over and over again.

    The water i choose was a large lake of 170+ acres that was formed due to the flooding of mining subsidence back in the early 1900s. The water had a reputation for producing big Bream and i had seen pictures ...

  2. The secret mere. Part 3.

    The weather remained settled and after banking the two commons i was gagging to get back and try for the monster tinca.

Whilst taking a break i had a walk around the estates grounds and stumbled upon paradise. On the edge of some woodland at the south of the grounds lay a small lake of a couple of acres, the water was gin clear with deep shelving margins. Sedges and wildflowers grew around the lakes banks and in the water aquatic plants thrived.

    During the autumn i had travelled out to France to visit my brother and father in order to help with some building work. I didn't take any tackle as i had no intention to fish on this trip.
